Larian Studios, the visionary team behind the critically acclaimed Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) fantasy RPG, Baldur's Gate 3, continues to demonstrate its commitment to player-driven experiences. While the studio embarks on new endeavors, it remains dedicated to enhancing the immersive world of Baldur's Gate 3 with exciting updates. The studio unveiled plans for its next major update, set to introduce official PC mod tools, inviting players to shape their own adventures within the game's rich universe.


Scheduled for release as part of Update 7 in September, the inclusion of mod tools marks a significant milestone in the evolution of Baldur's Gate 3. In a recent announcement, Larian Studios outlined the key features and timeline for the introduction of these eagerly anticipated tools.

The journey begins with a closed alpha test of the mod software, offering a select group of mod authors an exclusive opportunity to explore the capabilities of the official toolkit. Following this phase, in July, PC players will have the chance to sign up for a closed beta test, allowing up to 1,000 participants to experience firsthand the creations of early access modders.

Central to the modding experience is the seamless integration with the platform, where mods crafted with the official toolkit will find a home. Mod authors can anticipate a comprehensive suite of tools, empowering them to unleash their creativity:

  1. Editor Access: Create and customize mods with an intuitive editing interface.
  2. Direct Upload: Seamlessly upload mods to servers for easy access and distribution.
  3. In-Game Testing: Evaluate and refine mods in real-time by loading levels and testing them within the game environment.
  4. Asset Modification: Utilize internal editors to override textures and visual models, enhancing the visual fidelity of mods.
  5. Mod Publication: Share creations with the community via the in-game browser or distribute locally via third-party platforms.
  6. UI Customization: Tailor mod interfaces through file editing, supported by comprehensive documentation.
  7. Mod Management: Easily download and manage mods directly within Baldur's Gate 3.
  8. Multiplatform Support: While initially exclusive to PC, plans are underway to extend mod support to Mac, PlayStation, and Xbox versions of the game.


Larian Studios aims to foster a vibrant modding community, providing players with the tools and resources needed to craft unique experiences within Baldur's Gate 3. Whether embarking on epic quests, delving into intricate narratives, or experimenting with innovative gameplay mechanics, the possibilities are boundless.

For more information and updates on the mod toolkit, players are encouraged to join Larian's Discord channel, where they can connect with fellow adventurers and stay informed about the latest developments.
